Gartner positioned SAS as a ‘leader’ in Magic Quadrant for Operational Risk Management report
Evaluation based on completeness of vision and ability to execute
Gartner recognized SAS as a leader for operational risk management1 based on its ability to execute and completeness of vision.
Gartner states that “by providing a better understanding of the risks to business objectives, operational risk management (ORM) enables better business performance and capital allocation.” The report explains that software also helps “companies address the increasing pressure from regulators to improve the risk reporting in annual reports, and to improve the board of directors' role in enterprisewide ORM oversight.”
According to the report, the “critical capabilities of ORM software applications center on providing business leaders with a more effective means of assessing risk and control effectiveness, identifying operational risk events, managing remediation efforts, and quantifying the associated operational risk exposure across the enterprise.”
Quantitative analysis as part of operational risk measurement was highlighted by Gartner as important in supporting capital calculation requirements driven by regulatory mandates, such as Basel III and Solvency II. These methods are also “used to develop more precise predictive models to determine the potential for certain operational risk events, such as fraud or theft.”
“We believe our positioning as a leader by Gartner confirms that SAS® solutions clearly address market needs, such as the ability to help our customers improve data quality and advance their statistical modeling capabilities required by global regulators,” said Brooke Upton, Global Product Marketing Manager for Risk Management Solutions at SAS.
SAS was also recently named a category leader in the Chartis Operational Risk Management Systems for Financial Services 2014 RiskTech Quadrant®.
